Why is this in genre "Americana"
as it is clearly British. The Penny Cyclopaedia was put out by a charitable type of society in England, to help educated the middle and poorer classes.

Yes, complete jibberish, and in especial chapters or pages you are particularly interested in reading. Or, images of illustrations are replaced with the code, instead of the actual illustration.
